        Detection of neutrons liberated from beryllium by gamma rays: A new technique for inducing radioactivity. Offprint

      1934 - Szilard, Leo (1898-1964) and Thomas A. Chalmers. Detection of neutrons liberated from beryllium by gamma rays: A new technique for inducing radioactivity. Offprint from Nature 134 (1934). Single sheet, unbound. [2]pp. 216 x 134 mm. Crease in upper left corner, lower right corner chipped, light toning but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed in the upper right corner in an unidentified hand: "With compliments of L. Szilard." First Edition, Offprint Issue. In 1933, after fleeing from Germany to England to escape the Nazis, Hungarian theoretical physicist Leo Szilard came up with the idea of the nuclear chain reaction while crossing a street in London. He filed his first patent on the chain reaction in March 12, 1934 and that summer, in collaboration with T. A. Chalmers, he began a series of experiments on the beryllium nucleus using radium owned by the physics department at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College. "The beryllium nucleus was so lightly bound [Szilard] suspected he could knock neutrons out of it not only with alpha particles or neutrons but even with gamma rays or high-energy X rays . . . Their first experiment demonstrated a brilliantly simple method for separating isotopes of iodine by bombarding an iodine compound with neutrons. They then used this Szilard-Chalmers effect (as it came to be called), which was extremely sensitive, as a tool for measuring the production of neutrons in their second experiment: knocking neutrons out of beryllium using the gamma radiation from radium" (Rhodes, The Making of the Atomic Bomb, p. 215). The results of this second experiment are described in the present offprint. To Szilard’s disappointment, beryllium proved to be an unsuitable candidate for chain reaction; it was not until 1939, after the discovery of nuclear fission, that Szilard and Enrico Fermi were able to produce a nuclear chain reaction in uranium. The first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction—which made possible the atomic bomb—was accomplished by Fermi and his associates in 1942. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        The Cadaver of Gideon Wyck.

      New York, Farrar Rhinehart. 1934. New York, Farrar Rhinehart. 1934. First Edition. Near fine in publisher's black cloth titled in white, the white paint in this example being fresh, clean and unmarred by the customary flaking. The red top edge is a trifle faded in spots and dusty in others, all other edges uncut. Internally clean. In a lovely example of the extremely rare Lynd Ward dustwrapper (he also created the frontispiece for this title) depicting a shambling humanoid figure and an emaciated corpse on a gurney, all in the customary Cabinet of Dr.Caligari high contrast black and white style. The spine panel is slightly browned with some light superficial chipping to the spine ends and a little cosmetic scuffing to extremities. A lovely example. Possibly the best part of the dustwrapper is the public health warning printed on the back; 'WARNING: People unable to sustain violent shock are advised that they read this book on their own responsibility. AND THE PUBLISHERS REALLY MEAN THIS.' Publisher's don't seem to write blurbs like that anymore. A fine stirring shocker written in superior style concerned with medical experimantation and the perils of genetic meddling. Highly controversial at the time (which perhaps accounts for Laing's credit as 'Editor' rather than author) for its dwelling on the possibilities of experimentation on pregnant women to alter the nature of their issue. Alexander Kinnan Laing was an alumni of Dartmouth, a poet, the editor of a number of periodicals and an educator of some standing and repute. Immediately after graduating from dartmouth he sailed around the world on the SS Leviathan as an ordinary seaman and seems to have later become something of an authority on clipper ships. A lovely copy of a scarce piece of weirdness. Bleiler.

Bound in full carton covered flight, smooth back, as part of shagreen red guards and contreplats of handmade paper, canvas cover and spine preserved. Important autograph signed by the author on half-title page of Hubert Person. Our copy also includes, on the first watch, an original photograph of Roland Garros taken at an airshow and another guard, this handwritten accuracy Jean Ajalbert in achieving and history of bookbinding who dresses this autograph dedication of the author "This copy of MS is connected to the first German aircraft machine he had descended canvas. Roland had brought me a large piece in which I made him a portfolio that I sent him to Zorndorf. " Jean Ajalbert attached to this menu autograph dedication of the author, signed by Roland Garros, the room where the two men met on the occasion of the arrival of the Paris-Rome A volunteer run, 2 January 1911. 1914, Garros dream be the first to shoot down a German plane. On 19 August 1914, despite a bold pursuit, it fails due to lack of skill on his passenger charge to take the snap on the enemy. To modernize fighter aircraft and convince the high command of the strategic power of aviation Garros is developing a system enabling the pilot to fire through the propeller. So the controls of the first car hunter on April 1, 1915, Roland Garros shot down a German Albatros pulling his gun through the axis of the aircraft. In a letter to Ajalbert Garros reflects his interest in the relics of this historic victory: "I was in a car to see the debris; the first arrivals had won all autograph dedication of the authors, weapons, badges, etc.. I am active steps to recover. (...) Needless to say my success as complete satisfaction (...) I alone have fought without passenger. But what makes me most happy is the feeling of having created alone, and despite all the risks of the unknown in aviation, the instrument that brought me success. This is above all, my joy. "This victory and the following (when captured on April 18, he shot three of the five enemy aircraft destroyed since the beginning of the war) does not, however, succeed in convincing the French military authorities in the interest of his invention . The Germans, on the contrary, recover the wreckage of his plane and develop thanks to him that the Fokker dominate the sky long and cost the lives of Roland Garros October 5, 1918. Exceptional relic of one of the first aerial combat History. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure en plein cartonnage recouvert de toile d'avion, dos lisse, pièce de titre de chagrin rouge, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couvertures et dos conservés. Important envoi autographe signé de Roland Garros sur la page de faux-titre à Hubert Person. Notre exemplaire comporte également, sur la première garde, une photographie originale de Roland Garros prise lors d'un meeting aérien et sur une autre garde, cette précision manuscrite de Jean Ajalbert quant à la réalisation et l'histoire de la reliure qui habille cet ouvrage : « Cet exemplaire S.P. est relié en toile d'avion du premier appareil allemand qu'il avait descendu. Roland m'en avait apporté un large morceau dans lequel je lui fit faire un portefeuille que je lui envoyais à Zorndorf ». Jean Ajalbert a joint à cet ouvrage le menu, signé par Roland Garros, du déjeuner où les deux hommes se rencontrèrent à l'occasion de l'arrivée de la course Paris-Rome, le 2 janvier 1911. Engagé volontaire dès 1914, Garros rêve d'être le premier à abattre un avion allemand. Le 19 août 1914, malgré une audacieuse poursuite, il échoue à cause du manque d'habileté de son passager chargé de tirer au mousqueton sur l'ennemi. Afin de moderniser les appareils de chasse et de convaincre le haut commandement de la puissance stratégique de l'aviation, Garros met au point un système permettant au pilote de tirer au travers de l'hélice. C'est donc aux commandes du tout premier chasseur monoplace que, le 1er avril 1915, Roland Garros abat un Albatros allemand grâce à sa mitrailleuse tirant dans l'axe de l'avion. Dans une lettre à Ajalbert, Garros témoigne de l'intérêt qu'il porte aux reliques de cette victoire historique : « J'ai été en auto voir les débris ; les premiers arrivés avaient raflé tous les objets, armes, insignes, etc. Je fais des démarches actives pour les récupérer. (...) Inutile de vous dire ma satisfaction d'un succès aussi complet (...) Je suis seul à avoir combattu sans passager. Mais ce qui me rend surtout heureux, c'est le sentiment d'avoir créé seul, et malgré tous les risques de l'inconnu en aviation, l'instrument qui m'a porté au succès. C'est là par-dessus tout, ma joie. » Cette victoire et les suivantes (lorsqu'il est fait prisonnier le 18 avril, il a abattu trois des cinq appareils ennemis détruits depuis le début de la guerre) ne réussiront cependant pas à convaincre les autorités militaires françaises de l'intérêt de son invention. Les Allemands, au contraire, récupèrent la carcasse de son avion et mettent au point grâce à lui le Fokker qui dominera longtemps le ciel et coûtera la vie à Roland Garros le 5 octobre 1918. Exceptionnelle relique de l'un des tous premiers combats aériens de l'Histoire.

The precise identity of her hostess is a matter of conjecture. What one may say with certainty however is that genuine presentation copies of her early works are extremely uncommon.

Erste Ausgabe. - "Fermi bombarded several elements of increasing atomic numbers with neutrons. He hoped to find an artificial radioactivity produced by the neutrons. His first success was with fluorine. Immediately thereafter Fermi, with the help of Amaldi, D'Agostino, Rasetti, and Segrè, carried out a systematic investigation of the behavior of elements throughout the periodic table. In uranium and thorium the investigators found several forms of activity after bombardment but did not recognize fission. Fermi and his collaborators, having proved that no radioactive isotopes were formed between lead and uranium, put forward the natural hypothesis that the activity was due to transuranic elements. These studies. culminated in 1938 in the discovery of fission by Hahn and Fritz Strassmann" (DSB). Fermi erhält für die hier beschriebenen Entdeckungen 1938 den Nobelpreis für Physik. - Vorsätze und Titel gestempelt.
